First Desert Trip Weekend Had Stones, McCartney & Young Covering Beatles Tunes

The first Desert Trip weekend in Indio, California, featured the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Neil Young all covering classic songs by the Beatles.

Playing Friday night after Bob Dylan, the Stones dug in for a version of "Come Together." Mick Jagger introduced the Lennon-McCartney track as, "a cover song of a sort of unknown beat group, I think you might remember them."
On Saturday night, McCartney and Young came together for "A Day In The Life" and "Why Don’t We Do It in the Road," along with John Lennon‘s "Give Peace a Chance," performed as a tribute to the late Beatle's 76th birthday on October 9. 
Roger Waters and the Who got a little more political on Sunday night and will be back next weekend to wrap up the special event.
